In reply to Hot attic needs venting by Fred on June 20th, 2001 09:43 PM [Go to top of thread]

Hi Fred,

If you can get up in the attic, check that your soffit vents aren't blocked by either insulation or 'stuff'. Also, your rafter-chutes should be 'free and clear' of any 'stuff' you store up there too. IN short, you want the air entering the soffit to have a FREE and CLEAR path to the ridge vent.

A few years ago, I installed a thermostatically controlled gable fan that comes on at 105 degrees. Sometimes it gets as hot as 130 degrees up there in spite of having soffit, gable, AND ridge venting.

My best to ya and hope this helps.
